Myers (wrist) was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday.

The Padres were forced to make a roster move with Myers' left wrist still presenting issues, after playing a man short for over a week. Right-hander Cory Mazzoni was added in the corresponding move. Myers will be eligible to return next Tuesday (May 26), but it's uncertain if he'll be ready by that time. He took some swing in the cages Sunday, though the swings weren't at maximum effort.

Myers (wrist) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

There has been speculation that a DL move is on the horizon for Myers, with manager Bud Black indicating earlier Tuesday that a decision is imminent, but nothing's been made official to this point. If a DL stint is deemed necessary, it could be backdated to May 10. Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base Tuesday with Cory Spangenberg leading off.

Padres manager Bud Black indicated Tuesday that the team will soon make a decision about placing Myers (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list, MLB Network Radio reports.

Myers had been hoping to return for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, but Black's comments suggest that is unlikely to happen. A DL stint would only rule Myers out through Monday, as he hasn't played in a game since May 10. He did take some swings in a cage Sunday, but he still seems to be limited.

Myers (wrist) took some swings in a cage Sunday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Myers still isn't taking swings at maximum effort, but the progress is certainly encouraging. It's no surprise to see him sit out of Sunday's lineup (as he was expected to be out through the weekend), but Tuesday remains the target date for his return.

Myers (wrist) is taking ground balls but hasn't resumed hitting, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports. "The true test will be taking his swings," manager Bud Black said.

Myers has been out of the lineup since last Sunday due to a sore wrist, and the fact that he isn't hitting yet is not encouraging. He was expected to miss through the weekend, so it's not surprising that he's out of the lineup Saturday, but it could become more concerning if his absence extends much beyond that.

Myers (wrist) is not in the lineup Saturday against Washington.

Myers remains on the shelf as he continues to work through the tendinitis in his wrist. He received a cortisone shot Thursday, which will likely keep him out for the remainder of the Padres' series against Washington. Myers is not expected to land on the disabled list, however.

Myers (wrist) has been diagnosed with tendinitis, and while he will likely be out for the next three or four days, he isn't expected to require a stint on the disabled list, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports.

Myers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, and it sounds as if he'll likely miss the rest of the series. With the Padres off on Monday, Myers may be targeting a return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs. His absence could lead to some extra at-bats for Will Middlebrooks and Will Venable, both of whom are in Thursday's lineup.

Myers (wrist) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

Myers was sent back to San Diego on Wednesday to undergo testing on his left wrist, after he injured it during batting practice Tuesday. He missed time with a fracture in the other wrist last season, and the Padres still haven't provided an update on the latest injury. Will Middlebrooks will start at first base Thursday night, with Will Venable in center field.

Myers will return to San Diego to undergo tests on his injured left wrist, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Myers was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup after aggravating the injury during batting practice, and the team will exercise caution by sending the young outfielder to see a hand specialist. Look for the Padres to provide an update on the severity of the ailment when they return to San Diego on Thursday. Until a timetable is known, Abraham Almonte will continue to see extra reps.

Myers (wrist) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Myers aggravated his left wrist in batting practice Tuesday, resulting in his scratch from the starting lineup, and he'll miss at least one more start as a result of the setback. He missed extended action last season with a wrist injury, but that was a fracture of his right wrist. Still, it seems likely the Padres will send Myers for testing to gauge the extent of the issue. Will Venable will make the start in center field Wednesday as Abraham Almonte leads off for a second straight day.
